Help with parsing

Fellow Greeks,

What I find the most difficult thing to do at present when reading
Greek is parse accurately.

Do any of the scholars or Greek teachers out there know of any
good ways to learn to parse well. I can parse nouns and adjectives
reasonably well and present tense verbs, but the other verb forms
and especially PARTICIPLES, I have a lot of trouble with.

Can anyone point me to books, sections of books or articles that
deal with this matter well.
Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I think someone has the follow quote/proverb in there sig:

"To translate is human; To parse, divine."

Yes, I am beginning to see there is a lot of truth in this....
